To prevent poverty and promote long-term financial independence.
40% of all Americans have $500 or less in savings
Charlotte Metro Unemployment rate: 11.6%
Our mission is to provide financial assistance to working families who have been presented with an unforeseen financial crisis and provide educational resources which will enable them to be financially independent.
“Near poor” and “paycheck to paycheck” are common terms used to describe those who live just above the poverty line.
While there are many government agencies and non-profit groups to assist those below the poverty line, there are very few that assist those who are above it, and in danger of slipping below.
2 Steps Forward Foundation is a non-profit foundation dedicated to providing assistance to people who fall into this category, through individual grants and/or referrals to other non-profit organizations.
The foundation provides financial assistance to prevent poverty in the short term, and promote financial independence.
Individual grants fill the financial gap during crisis, and referrals to programs to address the root cause to promote long-term stability.
